Plot

'Cats' is the cinematographic adaptation of the Broadway musical, one of the longest-running musicals ever. It is directed by Tom Hooper, who won an Oscar for his work in 'The King's Speech' and has directed other movies such as 'The Danish girl' or 'Les Misérables'. It tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night that the patriarch of the group decides which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. These cats will present themshelves one by one, telling about their past and what makes them special to be the chosen one. It is counted in the cast with Jennifer Hudson, an Oscar winner for 'Dreamgirls', James Corden ('Yesterday'), Ian McKellen ('All Is True', 'Beauty and the Beast') and Taylor Swift. 'Cats' will be the return of the artist to the big screen after her small role in 'Valentine's Day' and her cameo in 'Hannah Montana: The Movie', even when she has been tangled to the film industry due to she made the original soundtrack of 'Fifty shades darker' or 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. The film and the musical are based on the book of poems for children written by T.S. Eliot, and the script is signed by the playwright Lee Hall (known for the 2000 film 'Billy Elliot' and 'Rocketman'). Hide full plot... Show full plot
